Dear Camarada Friends,
It is with great pleasure that I announce the 2013-14 Camarada Season. In this nineteenth season I am thrilled to announce our new collaboration with the Mingei International Museum, Balboa Park. As Mingei Artists in Residence, Camarada will present four Sunday night concerts in this colorful and refreshing museum. My vision for the new Mingle @ the Mingei Series is to bring great music to the people of San Diego in the beauty of Balboa Park at an extraordinary environment. Chamber music is the powerful vehicle to bring all these aesthetics together.
For children and families, Camarada will be offering several special programs entitled Meet a Musician. These vignette performances will be presented during selected Family Sundays at the Mingei International Museum. A variety of professional musicians will perform providing unique listening and interaction for lucky youngsters. Funding was awarded to Camarada for this project from the county under the guidance and direction of County Supervisor Ron Roberts.
The ideas for this season’s concerts have been brewing somewhere in our minds for a long time. Dana Burnett, pianist with Camarada and I spent this past spring and summer finding musical gems and favorites that we hope will soon be your favorites. We have also unearthed some new repertoire and new versions of old repertoire for our audiences.
Camarada is proud to announce that Nina Evarkiou has joined the Camarada family as General Manager. Please welcome her and introduce yourself at future concerts.
Be sure to visit the concerts and calendar menu bar on our web site for details on all three of our concert series, plus a listing of other guest appearances around San Diego. Stay tuned for personal pre and post concert stories on our new blog! I have missed all of you Camarada fans during this “off season” and can’t wait to get the season started.
An evening with CAMARADA in San Diego is truly one of the finest things to do in America’s Finest City.

You’re invited to come and arouse your senses at CAMARADA's
next intimate affair -- Just Jazz Two
on April 13th 2013, at the Meyer Fine Art Gallery on Kettner Boulevard
in Little Italy. If you’ve never experienced chamber music inside an art
gallery, what are you waiting for? Whether you’re a casual concert-goer
or a devoted subscriber, we’re excited to have you.
Just Jazz Two is a concert featuring feel-good music by Peter Sprague, as well as Beth Ross Buckley, flute; Fred Benedetti, guitar; and Gunnar Biggs, double bass.
What a fun night at Luce Loft playing with The Tree Ring, Beth Ross Buckley and Travis Maril! We collaborated on wonderfully poetic pieces of music composed by Joel P. West.
The Tree Ring has excellent musicians and it is nice to have new musical friends and colleagues in San Diego. I met Joel as we prepared for the Creative Catalyst Fund.
His work ethic is superb and I am so enjoying this experience. My second instrument as a youngster was tenor guitar, then 6 string guitar, 4 string banjo and finally 12 string guitar.
I always wanted to get back to this kind of experience….a band! Camarada has allowed me to do so! I look forward to our recording and future collaboration.AND I loved the lighting, and the space…thank you Typewriter Boneyard and Luce Loft. The book light is especially brilliant and fun.
